Research Institution
This project will produce an interactive videodisc-based (IVD) system designed to deliver asmoking cessation intervention in the worksite. The intervention will be developed to take advantageof the worksite setting to offer an on-going, repeated-contact intervention that tracks the progress ofeach user over time. Information provided by the user on stage-of-change, smoking history, anddemographics will be used by the system to select intervention content and on-screen models (usingage, race/ethnicity and gender) appropriate to the individual. In addition, data on prior use of theprogram by each individual will be used to determine optimal content in subsequent sessions. In PhaseI, we will develop an interactive videodisc intervention segment, designed for on-going application in theworksite, and tailored to one specific sub-population: older Caucasian females. In Phase II, we willemploy our methods to complete the development of customized worksite intervention tracks for theremaining 11 sub-populations. At the end of Phase II we will have completed all research, design, videoproduction, programming, evaluation, and other tasks necessary for full-scale production of free-standinginteractive kiosks for use in worksitesnationwide.
